Tyler Seguin and Rich Peverley scored in a shootout against their former team and lifted the Dallas Stars a 3-2 victory over the Boston Bruins on Tuesday night.

It was the second consecutive shootout win for the Stars. On Sunday, Jamie Benn scored the winner in a 4-3 victory over Ottawa.

Vernon Fiddler tied the game for Dallas on a penalty shot with 2:34 left in the third period after he was tripped from behind by Dennis Seidenberg. It erased a lead Boston took with 8:21 remaining when Milan Lucic tipped in Dougie Hamilton’s shot from the blue line.

The other goals came in the first period with Benn scoring for Dallas at 3:38. It was Benn’s ninth points in nine road games.

However, but Torey Krug tied it less than a minute later with his fourth goal in seven games.

The game was the first against the Bruins for Seguin, the second pick in the 2010 draft, and Peverley. They were traded to Dallas after last season.

Seguin, who leads the Stars in scoring, was booed several times when he touched the puck and taunted with the chant, “Say-gin, Say-gin.”

But after Patrice Bergeron scored on Boston’s first attempt in the shootout, Seguin tied it on Dallas’ second shot. The Bruins missed their other three shots, and Peverley won it on the Stars’ fourth attempt.

Boston lost for the fourth time in five games after a four-game winning streak.

It was the first meeting between the teams since Dec. 31, 2011, when Dallas won 4-2. The clubs hadn’t faced off in Boston since Feb. 3, 2011 –– a 6-3 Bruins victory.

On the penalty shot that forced overtime, Fiddler skated up the left side, cut across the crease and lifted a backhander into the upper right corner of the net past Tuukka Rask.

Lucic’s seventh goal matched his total for last season. Stationed in front of the net, with teammate Jarome Iginla and two Stars, Lucic redirected Hamilton’s shot past goalie Kari Lehtonen.

Loui Eriksson, who came to Boston in the deal with Dallas, returned after missing five games due to a concussion. He missed his shootout attempt.
